videobll01The culture would have us think that human evolution is based on technology and cures for diseases, yet that is only what people get up to while a different line of progress unfolds. And that progression is handed down genetically. That means evolutionary adaptations as well as traumas. It has been shown that people who experience shared trauma – such as war, or poverty – pass along genetic markers in their DNA to their offspring. So, we may want to believe we are on our own, but the universe, and the planet, and the species don’t see it that way.

John: So, in the meditation dream, I’m contacted by relatives that I hardly know. There is an inheritance that needs to be distributed, and, apparently, I’m one of the shirttail relatives or something that’s entitled to some aspect of all of this.

And it’s a side of the family that I don’t know much about, as they try to explain the relationship thing to me, but that whole thing is just too complicated for me to grasp. And, in terms of coming to me, everything and everyone is accounted for except for a particular connection that’s, again, like a shirttail relative, still part of all of the intertwining of things, that they don’t seem to know anything about.

And so I don’t know why they would think that I could have any ideas, in that regard, because I hardly know who they are. But, nevertheless, I’m being asked if I have any information in that regard.

Well as coincidences would have it, I am in the process of figuring this out in terms of another connection – independent from these particular relatives. And again, I have to figure this out because it has to be located. And it’s some infinitesimal, small part, and I’m trying to figure out how to do the math inside, and I can’t quite even do the math inside. And so now I’m presented with this other, and how do I put the two and two together, and then what does that..? I mean, I can’t compose this at all, nor can I compare where I’m at with them.

And they initially can’t believe what is taking place to be possible, what I have to show them, in terms of where I am at with this is, in a way, similar in regards of the figuring out in terms of their thread.

So the meaning is, in terms of understanding a deeper knowingness, I learn that there is an intertwined connection to a stream of evolution I hadn’t realized existed. In realizing this, a greater corresponding awareness is coming together. So, if one was to look at this in terms of the scenario, or explanation and meaning, in trying to understand the significance of joy and grief in terms of love, a greater connectivity to the correlative depths of the soul is being revealed.

The dream is revealing where I’m at in catching up with an intertwined connection. In the dream I have to cope with a commonality as I close the gap to an intertwined understanding. From the prior night, I learned that there are images in the stillness that the mind cannot grasp, and, as that is synchromatically brought into the unfoldment of tonight, in other words, as the nothing that is brought into the beingness, an intertwined awareness goes even more exponential.

I seem to be surprised by that; I shouldn’t be. The dream is pointing out that I’m still catching up the fact that we are all one. The dream is showing me where I am at in coming to terms with my greater overallness of being. From the flash images of the prior evening that brought me to a conscious inflection point, I am realizing that that inflection point and this inflection point are correlated, or intertwined. In the dream, as I’m scrambling to sort that out, I come to face a oneness. I am yet surprised, however, because I still have my amnesia to contend with. That’s the meditation dream.

30_0It is a situation we may find ourselves in all the time: moving into a new place or circumstance and needing to get our bearings. And, depending on our psychologies, how we manage these moments can provide new opportunities for us, or they can cause new upheaval in our lives. But, at our essence, we are designed to navigate the unknown; we have everything we need to respond to the stimuli we are receiving. Of course, that requires that we trust ourselves, and our systems, and let them work for us. If we are governed, instead, by our psychologies, we disconnect from our natural flow.

Jeane: In one dream, I’m in New York visiting a friend of mine, and we look like we’re in our 30s or something. And I’m going to be getting ready to go home soon, when we go back to her apartment, we suddenly discover that her friends have moved her to an entirely different apartment.

So we’re suddenly in a new apartment. It’s very neat, like with oak floors and things are arranged neatly, like it’s been completely unpacked and everything. And I’m kind of wondering how she’s going to take this, but she looks out the window and she sees a normal New York street scene with the delis and the cafes, and she knows suddenly that she’s in kind of the south part of Manhattan, and she’s not far from subways that can take her here and there.

And because it’s like a normal scene in Manhattan, she’s happy with it. She knows the city and so it’s not that big a change to her. Now, we’re apparently going to go out to somebody else’s house, like to a small party or something, before I leave to return where I came from. And we seem to go in and out through the window, which is the only oddity in this dream.

And I’m kind of just observing how she’s reacting to this sudden shift, and to one of her friends of hers that obviously had kind of spearheaded the move. But I know that, before long, I’m going to be getting on a train and going home. And so, in that dream, it feels like at that point, then there’s a shift to another dream.

John: So what you’re doing in this dream is you’re using Manhattan, or the city, as a kind of overallness. And you’re using the place where she stays, and then the new place that she gets, and then from there you can leave and you can go about into some other places. That all is reflecting an opening up – in terms of being able to take in, and embrace, the overallness.

In other words, not sitting in some set demeanor, or mannerism, or posture in relationship to things, and, therefore, not able to see the forest for the trees, so to speak. This way you’re moving about, and that moving about is incorporating and taking in everything that is there in the environment.

It’s a dream image going towards a oneness. The way I experienced it in a dream that I had last night is a quality and aspect of the intertwining, where you come to know that things aren’t as you perceive them to be, but they include this, and they include this, and they include that, and they include that. And when you include it all together, none of it fights itself. Not really. It all is intertwined, because that’s how the wholeness works. And it augments, it magnifies, itself by the intertwining, and it can be shocking because in the linear outer world we go along thinking that this over here is different from that over there. And we come to find out that there is a way of looking at it, there’s a way of taking it all in, in which it all comes together, it all fits. It is all part of the whole.

Jeane: Then, in the next scene, it feels like I’m getting ready to go home, but we’re all, for some reason, out at this area where there’s kind of like a sand hill. The top of the hill is kind of some railroad tracks, and behind that that’s another bank – I mean like an actual physical bank, and then there’s a bank where you put money in.

And there are some people kind of on the top of the sand hill, who I think of as tax collectors, and they’ve collected some kind of fee or tax. But my friend is then telling me, before I go home, I should go get some more money from them; get them to give me some money. I can see that they don’t want to do that. They’ve collected what they have and they don’t really want to give you back part of it.

Meanwhile, one of my friends with me has gone across the railroad tracks and up this bank and into the physical money bank. And I realize I actually have what I need to get home, I don’t really need to get this from the tax people. But I’m standing out there and I look down to see my purse, and instead of a purse I seem to have a plastic bag that you can see through. And I have to kind of pry the top of it open a little and be careful about tearing one corner.

And then I’m looking at what I have there to see if I have what I need, and then I also look and I can feel that I have keys in my pocket. And so I pull out the keys, and their gold-colored, but they don’t look entirely familiar. Like I think there might be more keys; maybe there’s another key that I’m missing somewhere, but I don’t know, because they are so shiny and golden. I don’t know whether they’re complete or not, I can’t quite tell. And that just seems to be where the dream leaves off.

John: So, in terms of correcting this, in terms of the myriad of things, or like a beingness that is the myriad of things, where one can get lost, a little bit lost, is in the idea, as your previous dream portrayed, that everything that’s going on is all intertwined, and interconnected, and that wholeness is a oneness.

Within looking at it that way comes the problem that you can be inclined, then, to be pondering things from the outer, as if, okay, how does one take all of that into account? Well, it doesn’t work that way. Your dream is pointing out, to make sure that you don’t take and go off on a tangent, your dream is pointing out that you look within. That you have the keys, that you have the access, all from a quality, deep within the depths of yourself.

And that the looking about in the outer isn’t helping you any. And, fortunately, you’ll have your purse, so to speak, to it all. Now, the reason it works that way is because, in the outer, the images, and the vibrations of things grab your attention and they keep you bouncing from this to that.

But on the inner, the flow, emerging from a stillness, is so subtle in its split-second way of being, that there isn’t room for the mind to get in the way. And thus, that is something that is coming in from the cosmos, from the universe of it all. And the taking in of that is the knowingness.

So you have the beingness needing the knowingness that causes the coming together to the true oneness, which, again, is indescribable. In other words, put the definition, as you read in terms of that Tao reading, put the definition of beingness and nothingness together. And that’s what you really have.

And yet, who can do that? Because we can’t get out of the way of our images and vibrations that will cause it to have some particular slant, or another, in order to keep us from going mad because we can’t handle it. We can’t take it in – in it’s true, absolute realness.

gateway-lAs humans, we may ponder the subtleties of life, but do we ponder why we can ponder the subtleties of life? To look at the universe is to understand that things unfold according to laws, with every cause leading to an effect. And because of this, it is unfolding toward something, or somewhere – perhaps some evolved state. Much of the grief in the world may, indeed, be caused by our disconnection from the utter beauty of things doing what they are meant to do. When things do what they are designed and meant to do, they find themselves in a sacred state. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: So I had three dreams. The first was a little bit less a dream than just kind of a scenario. And, in this scenario, my dad and I are going down, and I think that you or someone like you is along, too. And my dad has this idea that there’s this baseball team in town, and, as kind of like a lark, he’s going to go down and try out for it, because he has a sense that he and initially I think it’s me, but it ends up being you, can get on this team as kind of novelty batters, or something.

But where we go is we go right to a place where the ocean meets the shore. And that’s where you have the tryouts for the baseball team. In fact it’s almost like the batter’s standing on the land, and the pitcher and everybody must be out on the water. But I realize that I don’t really think either of you are going to get picked up by a Major League team.

John: So what you’re portraying is a quality of a letting go, in which the evolvement of things doesn’t have any kind of particular definition. Anything that has a particular definition is limited. I mean, it’s not a bad thing to now ponder that Tao thing that you read.

In other words, the limiting thing would be for me and your dad to be picked up by a Major League team because we’re actually doing something that’s noticeable, that has a particular consequence, or an effect, that can be utilized in some capacity, or taken in and steered in a kind of mental control in some fashion, or capacity.

But your dad and I, we just take the pitches that come, and we hit them out into infinity; they’re absorbed by the ocean, they don’t fall into a particular motif. So what you’re dream is saying to you is that the essence of yourself, in other words, as you sit as a being in manifestation, you are realizing that there’s nothing to be attained or accomplished, per se, that will fulfill you in manifestation.

So, you take in life in such a way whereby the input of things coming in – and the input of things coming in are kind of like something masculine in orientation – in other words, it’s because it’s the masculine that has to deal with the input of things, has to bring the stuff in, and you’re realizing that that masculine, those aspects of things, the value of those is not in terms of coming up with something that’s this or that – definitional – so that it meets and reaches some sort of recognition, recruited in some fashion, in some linear, definitional way.

You have come to know that the greater meaningfulness of things is that what comes in can get splayed, just like the definition of the word beingness in what you read, gets splayed into the overall wholeness of something that’s non-definitional.

So, what you’ve done is you’ve actually, in your dream, caught the meaning of beingness. And you’ve caught the meaning of nothingness. You should read that dream and put it on the tape.

Jeane: This is from a book called The Complete Works of Lao Tzu. It’s translated and elucidated by Hua-Ching Mi, and this is from the Tao Te Ching – but, again, it his elucidation or translation of it.

“Now the subtle reality of the universe cannot be described. That which can be described in words is merely a conception of the mind. Although names and descriptions have been applied to it, the subtle reality is beyond the description.

“One may use the word ‘nothingness’ to describe the origin of the universe, and ‘beingness’ to describe the mother of the myriad things. But nothing and beingness are merely conceptions. From the perspective of nothingness, one may perceive the expansion of the universe. From the perspective of beingness, one may distinguish individual things. Both are for the conceptual convenience of the mind.

“Although different concepts can be applied, nothingness and beingness, and other conceptual activity of the mind, all come from the same indescribable, subtle originalness. The Way is the unfoldment of such subtle reality. Having reached the subtlety of the universe, one may see the ultimate subtlety, the gate of all wonders.”
